Made in Tennessee: Manufacturing Milestones is a traveling exhibition organized by the East Tennessee Historical Society in Knoxville, Tennessee. There is an additional exhibit called Made in Obion County, which features the different manufacturers found in the local area. It is free with park admission.
I was surprised by the whole complex! Such a great "museum" so far off the "beaten" track. The main building has many interesting exhibits, but the real history lies in the outbuildings of the 55 acres of the park. Locomotive and train cars, authentic fire house, multiple old tractors, transplanted log cabins with historic origins, and just plain old stuff used by common people that you won't see anywhere else. Well worth the admission price!
Our church went on an all day outing to Discovery Park and had a great time. The youth and adults as well enjoyed everything. There is so much to look at from giant slides, chambers, antique automobiles, earthquake room and the tower where you can go to the top of the building and look out as far as you can see. I would recommend this place to visit and anyone wanting to have a good family time.
We were traveling from Kentucky to Texas for Spring Break. Decided to check Discovery Park out. The kids were not excited to go to a boring museum. That all changed once they got into the museum. The kids are 12, 13, & 17. They loved the interactive exhibits. There is so much to take in. They also loved the slide! Their favorite thing was the Starship Interactive Movie. Personally, it was not my favorite but it was theirs. The earthquake show was ok. We did not get to do any of the outside activities due to the weather. We spent over 3 hours there and could have easily stayed longer. Would definitely go back again & do highly recommend it if you are in the area.
